I finished my junior year, which culminated in a performance for my musical theatre practicum class, designed to be a capstone for juniors and seniors in the department. I then served as the first summer intern for Ensemble Theatre of Chattanooga. I helped with marketing and publicity, helped organize and then participated in our first Off-the-Grid event (a wonderfully silly 24-hour-play festival), and helped with our second annual Bizarre Bazaar fundraiser. It was a great learning experience to be on the "non-performance" end of a theatre for a change. After my internship, I spent a month in Europe. I took a theatre appreciation course in London that allowed me to see 9 incredible West End shows, and then I backpacked through France, Italy, and Ireland with a dear friend. It was a summer full of new theatre experiences and new life experiences!
I am currently back in Memphis, fully immersed in the ridiculously busy fall semester of my final year of my undergraduate education. I am thrilled to be cast in the mainstage musical, Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up?, which is a cute, charming show about Catholic schoolchildren.
